How soon after giving birth and getting stitches can I get in a hot tub I gave birth on October 4th 2015?
I would give it at: Least 10-14 days before immersion in water. Showers would be okay.

Please take precautions and shower until you have recovered completely. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

After giving birth I was prescribed percocet, how long does it take to get out of your system when breastfeeding. How far back does a oral test go?

The more important piece of information that's missing here is wheter or not you are getting a regular period. That would indicate if you are ovulating, and if so it's likely not the depo. That's the cause of your infertility.
Typically Depo-Provera can affect your hormones anywhere from 9 to 12 months after the last injection, and make it difficult to get pregnant. After that a normal menstrual cycle should ensue.
There are a lot of factors here that need to be considered, I suggest you make an appointment with your primary care doctor or ob/gyn in order to better assess your situation.
Good luck. ...Read more
